What you said was logically sound. Apparently, "parse" and "extract" mean something very specific to you, whereas I merely used them in a loosey-goosey way.

But I do make distinction between "data" and "info." This is data: "1I2N! 2r2U 1E! 1R 1f"; this is info: "FIRE! RUN!".

[Corion]: usemodperl: No, asking is not unreasonable. Insisting that it must always keep working for you is unreasonable.
[Corion]: But again, you haven't explained why your users need to download, or why they need to download via http, or why you can't host the SSL-stripper yourself.
[choroba]: Wait a second. Does shutting down mean the cpan clients can no longer use their urllist?
[usemodperl]: i'm under no obligation to explain myself mommy, and i'm not insisting, just asking a simple question
[Veltro]: So, I'm confused on the matter actually. There are locked-down computers, but they need updates. How does that work? Isn't that contradictary?
[usemodperl]: EXACTLY
[usemodperl]: and the https only situation makes it even worse
[Veltro]: How is that 'exactly'. Locked-down means you don't change or update. So why do you need to access CPAN?
[Corion]: choroba: Heh - I think that's an interesting situation - you can't bootstrap a vanilla Perl then via CPAN, as IO::Socket::SSL is not in core, but also can't be installed from a cpan client. You need a wget/curl with SSL built-in to do that :)
[usemodperl]: i was thinking of forcing something like to proxy from meta but they seem all https too :-/

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
